It is definitely possible that this is the best chinese food that Tampa has to offer, but it is not the best chinese food I have ever had. Not sure what comparison to make, but I suppose it isn't fair to compare it to NY chinese food, especially since this is supposed to be authentic, not americanized. Anyway, I am... More

This no frills Chinese restaurant by far is the best in the Tampa, FL area and is very inexpensive too. You can bring your own wine (& wine glasses) and no matter how many people are in your group and how much you eat the cost is always around $15 with tip. We always eat family style whether we have...

We had heard a great deal about this restaurant. We were a little surprised at the flies inside the eating area. There was a smelly dumpster located on the side of the entrance. Pretty sure that was the cause of the flies. The service was average and the food okay. There is another Chinese restaurant just down the street. It... More

Just be warned folks. We went there due to high rating. It was a crowded and dirty place with a local crowd. If you are looking for a nice dinner with ur family, this is not a place for you. Several flies were buzzing around and we left. I have to say the people eating there seemed happy...

A great restaurant for Chinese food in Tampa. Huge portions. The fried rice is my go to dish. Salt and pepper calamari is a great starter!

We celebrated my mom's 75th birthday here last month. There were 20+ people and they handled us all extremely well. The menu items were chosen before we got there so that made it a bit easier on our servers. The Lettuce wraps (appetizers) were my favorite item - so delicious! We also had a variety of other dishes, from fried... More

The food here is great. Lots of meat in the meat dishes. One warning. If you order, say, beef and scallions, you are going to get beef and just scallions. No mixed veggies. Restaurant is a dive with billet holes in the window. Not fancy. You can bring in your own wine! No corkage fee. Good service. Have been there... More

This is one of our family favorites. It's not your typical Chinese place. We love the salt and pepper calamari, you can actually taste the calamari not the batter. It is also drizzled with chopped roasted garlic and baked slivers of jalapenos. The food is family style, which means the servings are large enough to share. Normally I would not... More

Basic chinese restaurant. Sweet & Sour pork was very good as was the mogolian beef. Mongolian beef has a few red peppers in it so if you do not like a little bite, ask for them to not put in the peppers. Portions are large, enough for 2. Service is not well organized. I believe they bring out the food... More

This is a great place if you are tired of the usual grocery plaza Chinese food swimming in brown sauce. The cashew chicken was delightful. I would suggest going for lunch. Dinner time is crowded and if you are not picky, you might get a large table with a bunch of strangers.
